Ok so I'm going to be buying the new updated 30GB iPod pretty soon and am wondering how I would be able to tell the difference between the old and the new from the outside of the box. Basically, if I buy at an Apple Store, I want to be sure its one of the new ones (the better battery life and brighter screen interest me). And, as much as I hate to say it, I cant trust the salespeople at the Apple Store. So is the box any different? If there's no other way to tell besides opening it up and checking out new features / seeing if it has the new headphones, I'll just buy it online. But I'd really like not to have to wait.
